Yay! I'm so happy you were able to work it out! It didn't take long for the Addonitis to get to you. I was really feeling it after our Aulani visit, but we'll need to wait for the dust to settle here after our move.

Tell me about it! That and the TIW going up to $100.

Phew - that is some story on the points. I am really glad it all worked out for you. Talk about stressful.

Your plans for next Christmas sound wonderful. I would love to go down there for NYE. I have no idea why. I just do. Weird.

I am glad you got the AP, that means you definitely need to do a Spring trip!

AHHHHH.....the joys of being back on the DIS. To read your story was like falling in love with the DIS all over again.

I'm glad everything so far seems to be on point..

So, now we wait for point charts and the 11 month booking date.
They did that-- Good thng I was making sure I use my pass in Oct for the 20% off.

Wow I pretty much knew you added on and glad you did at BW.
What an ordeal and some creativity and pixie dust that went into it.

So happy for you and I am trying for NYE 2013 too

I'm exhuasted just trying to figure all of that out, Cynthia. I don't know how you kept it straight and kept sane at the same time. I'm glad it all worked out in the end.

Too bad you have that Hawaii trip; otherwise, you could go in June when MaryAz and the girls, MEK, me (hopefully) are all going.

I'm all fuzzy headed and dizzy and all I did was read about your drama. I can only imagine how you felt while dealing with it.

2014 trip report: Disney dangled the visual weinee and Mickeystoontown gobbled it up! Our two week adventure!

First, a belated Merry Christmas! I loved your Christmas card and tree photos. really nice!

Your post about Tracy was just beautiful and brought me to tears. Sounds like you all had such a great trip. I know the speed that happens once a strong person enters hospice--my sister fought long and hard, and when she finally "gave in" to hospice, she knew she was done fighting and was there less than 48 hours. Thanks for sharing some of Tracy's personality and joy with us!

Finally, WOW! First how crazy that WA was not included in the states in which they could sell. who ever heard of such a thing? Sounds like you have a great agent who really dug around to find a solution for you. It definitely made your CA anniversary trip an adventure - Philippines and all!

that photo of the boardwalk is amazing! where did you take it from? Its like a post card! Your big fat plan is going to be a load of fun when it all comes together (which I hope is less painful than putting together the trip for this TR!)

Your tribute post to Tracy was lovely Cynthia... Since I just reread and watched a Christmas Carol... it reminds me of how Dickens said "he kept Christmas well and in his heart... the whole year long..." Tracy seemed to keep Disney magic well and in her heart...

as for your trip plans... I need more coffee to get all the details but I'm pretty sure that you and Jeff will be going to Aulani... and there will be some sort of family trip next year covering the New Year's Date... All sounds amazing...

We plan to be in WDW Christmas Day 2013 through New Year's 2014, as well. I think there will be a huge group of DIS friends, so we will have to plan a big meet. Maybe we can fill a Jungle Cruise boat again or find an out of the way place to have a counter service meal. It's always fun to meet DIS grown-ups in person and to see how quickly DIS kids become friends.

The Epcot Resort Area is my favorite place to stay. Either the Boardwalk or BCV will do fine for me. That view of the pool area....

Yes it's me....for the next few days, I have limited access.
